2015 Audi Encounter Upside Down 1849 600x300 photo

One of our favorite publications from Audi is their _Encounter Magazine (a.k.a. Dialoge in German speaking markets). More than just the typical consumer marketing fluff piece, this publication publishes more engineering-minded stories sharing unexpected or little known views of Audi and its technology… perspectives like the underside of an automobile.

While we love our Audi allroad and its Avant body style, we recognize that it’s not the most sporting offering ever to roll out of Ingolstadt. Yes, we lust for cars such as the RS 4 and RS 6, but as the only Avant sold in the USA, the allroad packaging and equipment were our only choice if we wanted a so-called “longroof” with four rings on the grille.

We’re just going to get this out there. We hate the “hairdresser’s car” stereotype often applied to the Audi TT. Yes, the car is stylish and maybe even whimsical with its two-seater configuration, but judging it solely on those qualities is your loss. The TT Roadster has always been a very cool car, and with the latest third generation Audi has amped it even further with trick design and the trickiest of tech gadgetry. More…

Much like Essen, Germany’s other big show focused on the aftermarket, trying to find a direct equivalent elsewhere in the world is a bit difficult. Sure, there are “auto jumbles” that cater to vintage cars like Hershey or Carlisle, and there are trade shows like the SEMA Show where company’s display their parts in a trade […] More…
